Understanding China, One Blog at a Time

Congrats to China, Slamming the Door on Net Impropriety!

China announced it has set up a new bureau to monitor the internet. I applaud this action as the chinese have too many people and way too much free time to actually excercise their minds. What good could come of allowing 1,340,000,000 people roaming the inter tubes mindlessly as they searched out “T and A” and peeked at coozle all day? Why do these serfs need unfettered access to all this data, dont they have their little chartreuse book? Well below we can see just how far china had slipped in years past. Even Burma, Iran and Cuba had more net freedom! This is a travesty, China must always be number one! In summary, kudos China and the government for wringing out any sense of free thinking those peasants may have!

    Meh, it’s all a matter of perspective… True, in China the internet is censored by the government, on the other hand, in the U.S. the internet is censored by the entertainment industry!
